Cthulhu Fhtagn! Severa Edition.

This nicely done pair of Cthulhu idols come to us from artist Adam Severa.  The fact that it looks equally good in both finishes demonstrates the strength of the sculpt.

Orc Trail Ration

Wats6831 returns with his latest take on fantasy trail rations. This time around he serves up an orcish repast.

Orcs aren't known for their great cuisine. Orcs prefer foods that are readily available (whatever can be had by raiding), and portable with little preparation, though they have a few racial delicacies. Toughs strips of lean meat, bones scavenged from recent kills, and dark coarse bread make up the bulk of common orc rations.

Fire roasted rothe femur (marrow is a rare treat) [beef femur], Strips of dried meat (of unknown origin) [homemade goose jerky], foraged nuts, only edible by orcs....nut cracker tusks [brazil nuts], coarse black bread, made with whatever grains can be pillaged [black sesame bread], Pungent peppers [Habanero peppers stuffed with smoked fish and olives].

Brown Jenkin

Witnesses said it had long hair and the shape of a rat, but that its sharp-toothed, bearded face was evilly human while its paws were like tiny human hands. It took messages betwixt old Keziah and the devil, and was nursed on the witch’s blood—which it sucked like a vampire. Its voice was a kind of loathsome titter, and it could speak all languages.
-H.P. Lovecraft, The Dreams in the Witch House

Filmmaker Nick Hilligoss brings us this recreation of Brown Jenkin, one of Lovecraft's most disturbing creations.   The stop motion puppet is built up from latex over an aluminum armature.
